The Lincoln Pops Orchestra, also known as the Lincoln Pops Big
Band, has been performing in Lincoln County for more than 30 years.
The band has evolved into one of the finest big bands in Oregon. A
nonprofit organization, the Lincoln Pops is dedicated to preserving
and passing along the heritage of the big band era. Dancers
and music-lovers are invited to attend this month's big band dance
and concert, held the third Thursday of each month at Gleneden Beach Community
Led by Newport High School's Band/Choir Director and trumpet
artist, John Bringetto, the Lincoln Pops plays all types of dance
music, including swing, Latin and jazz tunes. Members include
current and retired professional musicians, band directors, former
high school and college players, and even a few talented local high
school students. And every big band needs a great vocalist; the
Pops has four.
Come enjoy listening to the rich sounds of big band jazz.
Refreshments are available.
